The Borderlands of Scandiran is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The quiet, industrious population of 196 million Scanderanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 16.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Scandiranian economy, worth 11.6 trillion Punces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,116 Punces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and executions often take hours as amateurs attempt to find veins. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Scandiran's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Scandiran is ranked 108,504th in the world and 25th in The Democratic Republic of Freedom for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 894.82 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
